London Independent Photography celebrates the capital's finest snappers

Eye-catching images from both amateur and professional photographers alike are currently being showcased at London Independent Photography’s 21st Annual Exhibition, which opened on Monday, and runs until the 31 October. The work represents the best in show from the LIP’s membership.

The work on display was chosen by independent selectors Magda Keaney (Curator Photography, National Portrait Gallery) and Susanna Brown (Curator Photography, V&A Museum) and showcases the creativity and quality of work coming out of London's photographic community.

London Independent Photography is a community organisation for amateur and professional photographers with more than 450 members. Its activities are designed to bring together photographers with different interests and levels of expertise who wish to develop their personal approach to photography, improve their skills and gain recognition for their work. Many members have exhibited widely and held solo exhibitions, but gather together to show their individual approaches to photography in an annual group show in London.

The exhibition runs until the 31st October 2009 in Cottons Atrium, Tooley Street, London Bridge and opens daily between 7.00am-9.00pm with free admission. A catalogue of all of the work in the exhibition is available online at
